 The Temporary Fashion Museum in Rotterdam opens its door with interiors designed by Studio Makkink & Bey

Studio Makkink & Bey was asked by EventArchitectuur to take part in this special project, creating a physical location for exhibiting and admiring the works of Dutch fashion designers. Architect Rianne Makkink explains the nature of the challenge in designing the Temporary Fashion Museum as, "In our work we let ourselves be guided by what is present and how this can evolve into something new. It involves more than just taking your inspiration from the past – it becomes an active archive."

This philosophy can be found everywhere in the main hall of the Temporary Fashion Museum. They use standardised storage shelves to display the clothing collections that can be viewed, studied and touched.

A working space is created for studying the collection of Eva Maria Hatschek, which is mostly stored in boxes. In addition, the exhibition also features archive items from Studio Makkink & Bey itself, including a movie theatre that is now on its Dutch premiere in the Temporary Fashion Museum.

Active archives can also be found in the section ‘Dressed by Architects – Surprising Finds’.

"When architects make drawings of their designs, they are enlivened with images of people, future residents or users. These people are dressed by the architect's imagination," says Rianne Makkink.
